for having this hearing today. i'm going to focus on prop k in particular which is the half cent sales tax for transportation in san francisco. however, there are a lot of funding programs that are available to address pedestrian safety, and the challenge is how to balance the various opportunities to address it in a strategic manner. is there enough funding? no. but i think we have an opportunity with the strategy to figure out the ways to address the highest need areas in a strategic way. in the past there hasn't been a clear vision how to put together the program of projects so what we're looking for with the five year prioritization programs is moving in the right direction to link transportation investments and the efforts of the pedestrian safety task force with safety goals and prop k is flexible in that regard. it can fund basically all of the transportation infrastructure improvements that you heard discussed today. tomorrow you have continental walks and safe to routes program and next month curb signals and curb ramps. we leverage federal and state grants for all of these p

th is tax day, where we pay our taxes. april 19th, friday, is the anniversary both of the oklahoma city bombing and also the waco raid. none of these are connected, right, but could any one of those lead you in the direction of a domestic group? most certainly. you can be sure investigators are looking at all those potential connections to see in what direction when you pull it all together the facts lead them. >> paul, although we don't know yet, very quickly, how soon would you expect to have a much clearer idea? >> it's difficult to tell how the investigation is going to go. but the forensics will be absolutely key. maybe there will be some sort of claim of responsibility, maybe somebody will be brought into custody that can shed light on what happened. but there's a huge effort right now under way, piers. >> i want to bring in tammi hughes on the phone who just crossed the finish line when the explosions went off. a terrifying experience for you. >> just awful. >> how are you? tell me what you saw and how you felt about it. >> well, i had just come across the finish line and i

's that kind of symbol that a terrorist would look at. and also it's tax day. it's april 15th. and if it's a domestic type of terrorist that hates their government and wants to rebell against it, that's also a symbol as well. i think we'll follow the evidence the way law enforcement people do, being a former da, you only know what you know. and they're sorting those things out. i can tell you this, that the fusion center here where the federal law enforcement people work with the state law enforcement people and the local is one of the finest in the whole country. it's rated that way. and so there's though question in my mind that that group added with the assets of the entire country right now, that the president is calling on, will bring the person responsible to justice. there's that level of confidence right thousand. but it's hard to even go there when you're sitting there, that people that you know, and people that know other people have been injured thin this. three have already lost their lives. it's hard to get past that, but the professionals who are doing their are doing that
that a terrot would use. it is tax day. it's april 15th. that could be a symbol for someone that is a domestic terrorist. we don't know that yet. i'll tell you this from boston, we are renowned for having the best fusion center. they are working feverishly right now. i do feel with the assets of the entire u.s. government the way the president has said he would give us today that we will bring the person responsible to justice. in the city tonight they're not looking that way. they're not feeling that way. we've lost three people. over 120 people are reported injured. there's a numbness in the city not out of fear but out of trauma at this occurring. >> congressman bill keating. a tough night for the city you love. when we come back 26 miles in honor of 26 lives. the family of newtown, connecticut faced with a whole new tragedy.

. they are more worried about the impact on the economy and payroll taxes january 1. connell: let's bring just jeff and from raymond james. let's follow up on what peter is reporting on and the financial markets both yesterday and today. even without what happened in boston yesterday was setting up to be a remarkable day. stocks were down. gold was selling off. there were further jitters after what happened in the afternoon, obviously. >> it reminded me very much of the hunt silver corner. when it finally, when the fever finally broke on october 7, excuse me, january 7 of 1980, you had a hard move on silver just like you did on gold on friday. they try to hold the markets together. the margin calls went out. people had to start selling their commodity positions. i do not know if they play that way here or not, but it has had a heart attack on the market and heart attack patients do not get right off the gurney and run a 100-yard. connell: if it bounces back up, is it in your view over at this point and the second part, what, if any, to the impacts of the bombing have? >> the bombings in boston
and freddie, and even the mortgage interest tax deduction. the support bases for housing right now seems to be quite artificial, and i think that is why a lot of home builders are afraid to get into this market right now to build more because they are skeptical this is a real recovery. melissa: you are to real estate guys who are not bullish on real estate, how is that? it seems he does not believe in the recovery and the data. >> no, absolutely not. i think there's going to be a significant price increase in housing in the short term. today there may be some momentum created were a lot of momentum created by low interest rate, but when you look historically at the housing market, people need a place to live, even rental properties a lot of them are single-family homes or apartments. at the end of the day, people need a place to go, new household creation is outpacing the supply, so more people looking for a home than there are homes available and nationwide in almost every major metro we are at very low inventory rates so i am bullish. if you want to make money right now, look at single
that have runners here. it's that kind of symbol a terrorist would look at and also it's tax day. it's april 15th. and if it's a domestic type of terrorist that hates their government and wants to rebel against it, that's also a symbol as well. i think that we'll follow the evidence the way law enforcement people do. being a former d.a., that's -- you only know what you know. and they're sorting those things out. i can tell you this, that the fusion center here, where the federal law enforcement people work with the state law enforcement people, and the local is one of the finest in the whole country. it's rated that way. so there's no question in my mind that that group added the assets of the entire country right now, that the president is calling on, will bring the person responsible to justice. it's that level of confidence right now. but it's hard to even go there when you're sitting there, you know, people that you know, people that know other people, have been injured in this, and this terrible incident, three have already lost their lives. >> yeah. >> it's hard to get past that now,
we do know. let's be thankful we have spent our tax money to build up the capacity to do this, thankful of a police department, a fire department and public health people. you know, it's fashionable these days for people in my line of work to brag about cut and reduce government. i'm glad they weren't successful. this is an enormously expensive undertaking. large numbers of people and people complaining they're paid too much. well, i hope we have the best possible people. i hope we have people who are the investigators, scientific investigators, personality people who can do this. and i hope they're going to be able to get answers but i don't see how anybody can know right now. >> sir, one thing that was written this morning about "boston globe" column miist and said it's left with an unnerving proposition. a homegrown, lunatic, foreign inspired or sponsored, we'll never feel safe in our own town. i know you said you want to feel optimistic. what's your message of people of boston and massachusetts? >> that's greatly hyperbolic. we have a terrible attack. thousands of people k
towards a foreign or domestic. it could be either one. patriots day, also tax day. that could've got people up in arms. it could be a foreign type. so you leave all the options, all the possibilities open and let the evidence and the cctv cameras and the witnesses will bring you to your suspects. >> chief, how extensive is the camera network in boston? obviously, when something happens in london you can -- >> dial it up. >> you can dial it up pretty quick. there are a few streets in london that aren't on close circuit tv. do you know what the situation is in boston? >> yeah, my sense is most american cities, new york is going that route. there's nothing like london and belfast. those two cities have complete integrated system and it's almost nothing without it being captured on cctv cameras. as a matter of fact, back in 2005 in london, they were able to follow those guys from outside of london all the way into london to the subways and to the bus. so there the cctv cameras were absolutely invaluable in the investigation. my sense is boston -- they will have some cctv cameras. filming
happened in waco. one more quick note about the timing. yesterday was tax day for everyone in this country but here in boston it was patriots day which commemorates the battles of lexington and concord, the start of the u.s. revolutionary war. big day not only for the country but boston. >> what was supposed to be a celebration turned out differently. let's go back to new york and savannah. >> matt on monday evening president obama spoke about this tragedy offering his thoughts and prayers to the city and vowing justice to those involved. i happened to sit down with him shortly before these explosions and we talked about a number of things in the headlines. we began with the gun legislation before congress that many say is now hanging by a thread. >> i think we've got a good chance of seeing it pass if members of congress are listening to the american people so let's just take the example of background checks. 90% of americans think that we should make it tougher for criminals or people with serious mental illnesses to obtain a gun, and so the notion that congress would defy the overwhelmi
to help that i mean, this is a marathon. it is a taxing event anyway. they have got medical personnel right there at scene because so many runners are just absolutely maxed out when they cross the finish line. >> exactly. as we do here in new york city, we have medical tents set up, a lot of them at the finish line. it was great the doctors and first-responders were there to help administer care. the problem is they're not set up for an explosion or disaster of this sort but definitely helps to have the medical care present. jon: you say one of the things people should be alert for in the weeks and months, years to come is ptsd, posttraumaic stress disorder. >> yes. after a event like this which is horrific in nature, it also stirs deep emotions in lots of people. people will become depressed and many will suffer recurrent nightmares and visions of this type of trauma if they were actually there and witnessed it. we have to be alert for that occurring in both adults and children. anybody who was witness to this is subject to that it is something we have to keep a close watch on becaus
